Imperata cylindrica is one of the 10 worst weeds in the tropics and subtropics. Although it has many beneficial uses, the problems related to its invasiveness far outweigh its positive benefits. I. cylindrica negatively affects production of annual, perennial, plantation, and forest crops. Its mode ...

Coffee genetic resources are being lost at a rapid pace, leading to loss of genetic diversity. Some of the threats contributing to the erosion of coffee genetic diversity include human population pressures, which lead to conversion of land to agriculture, deforestation and land degradation; low...

World energy demand is straining energy supplies and spurring the search for alternative energy sources - especially transportation fuels. Ethanol produced from cellulosic feedstock has been called a 'second-generation' biofuel. (Ethanol made from maize and sugarcane represents a 'first-generation' ...

The existence of numerous wild species, the variability within species and the wide geographical distribution in combination with the weak barriers to interspecific and intersectional hybridization, make genetic relationships within the genus Rosa difficult to unravel. The use of molecular...

Yield and quality losses due to disease are major factors limiting crop productivity; thus breeding for disease resistance is a primary goal for many plant breeding programmes. Unfortunately, specific sources of resistance are not always available. In cases where sources of genetic resistance are...

Unexplored biodiversity exists within crop species and their close relatives, which could be used to improve germplasm for salt-affected land. However, screening large germplasm collections for salt tolerance is difficult, and more specific and feasible selection techniques are required. Knowledge...

Weed problems continue to be an obstacle in plant protection and in natural areas, causing high costs of control and asking for adequate prevention measures. New weed problems in any given area (risk area) may arise from three basic sources: by introduction and naturalization of new weedy plant...

Crop plants sown near populations of wild or weedy relatives are capable of gene exchange via pollen transfer. Historically, there has been concern over the possible contamination of breeding plots from the influx of pollen from nearby crop relatives, but pollen flow from the crop to the wild...

In wild sunflower germplasm, considerable variability is available for disease and insect pest resistance or tolerance of abiotic stresses like drought and salinity. In addition, fatty acid composition and protein quality can be modified by including wild species in the breeding programme....
